Because the cars were full, I was able to ride up the first part on the front platform with the driver through a classic Swiss country scene. Once on the mountain, you are treated to a spectacular view of the Berner Oberland mountains and a very pleasant and large restaurant / sundeck. Additionally, a short climb will take you to... More

The funicular that takes you part of the way up to Stanserhorn is fun, has nice views of the lower mountain meadows. The Cabrio Cablecar takes you to the top and is breathtaking! An open-air top deck provides a 360-degree view of the mountains and valleys on your ride up. Do not miss these two activities: - Sunday morning Catholic... More

We arrived in Lucerne unsure as to where to go from there to see the mountains and were fortunate to find an agent at the tourist information centre who told us about Stanserhorn. It was easy to get to by train and a short walk from the train station. First we got on a small cog-wheel train car that took... More

If you like technology, then do not miss this newest addition to air transport, called the CabriO. Just opened in July 2012, this two-story transport with a panorama deck lets you really enjoy the ride to the Stanserhorn top. The CabriO is only one half of the Bahn. The first half up the mountain is done by a little wooden... More

Took this tour as part of a Trafalgar Group. First we took the old style railway car and then changed half way up to the new Cabrio (open top cable car). The Cabrio only opened at the end of July 2012. Each car can hold 60 people on 2 levels. Excellent views on the way up and even better once... More

Highly recommend, and it's super easy to get there, it takes half an hour from Lucerne to Stans by train, buy the ticket right get off the train, 3 minutes... More

Here you board the Cabrio whhich is the new open top cable car. The first in the world. The ride up and down is superb giving clear views back across... More
